An HOA website usually does a decent job of keeping residents informed about what’s going on in the homeowners association. Yet, some of them ignore members, failing to build the connection it normally takes to make a members’ participation in the HOA a more enjoyable experience. If you are one of those individuals that want the association to have a greater significance, don’t wait for the HOA website to help you. Instead, use the following as a guide to make your life as a member as enjoyable as possible.
One of the first steps towards ensuring you get the most out of your HOA is to attend meetings. These provide an ideal opportunity for you to learn about the developments that are happening in the community. You can also voice your opinion on matters like HOA fees and special assessments. If you don’t know other members already, HOA meetings provide the perfect setting for you to meet them.
HOA meetings provide a great environment for members to interact with one another. However, you need to plan, coordinate, and execute a social event in order to form a meaningful bond with many residents. Think of a fun activity that will bring the entire community together such as a sporting event.
Even though social gatherings are an effective tool for meeting other residents, some of your neighbors won’t be able to attend. Reach out to them through social media or use another opportunity to introduce yourself. Neighbors that are acquainted with you are more likely to alert you if they notice suspicious activity around your home.
All of this might sound like a lot of work but the results make it well worth it. Often, you gain a greater appreciation for all the work the association does after participating in a few activities. Beyond that, the newly formed relationships with other residents could shape your life for decades to come!
